Bold = council representative

Tournament runs from 12/16 - 12/30 (noon), playoffs from 12/30 - 1/10.

Open competition.

Rosters lock 12/23.

Minimum battles to qualify for playoffs is 7; if multiple teams are below 7 battles, the team(s) with more matches played makes the playoffs.

Playoff format is 5 seed vs 4 seed, top seed has bye, 6th 7th and 8th seed don’t get in. 1 seed vs 4v5 winner, 2v3 seed. Higher seed chooses between 2 maps/3 factions or 3 maps/2 factions.

No ringers are allowed in playoffs.

The team that picks 3 maps must pick their maps first.

Can only battle a certain team two times per night (18 hours).

Once map 1 starts, the maps and factions are locked unless both teams agree to switch.

Your team must somehow communicate (through chat, admin, or respawning) within the first 15 second spawn cycle that you need to restart the map. Otherwise, the map must be played through.

Cannot pick the same map more than once per battle.

Teams must battle another team they have faced less often first when choosing between battling two teams. This only applies to unscheduled battles. "Scheduled" means specified time and day at least 3 hours in advance. You can only have one scheduled match with a certain team at a time.

2 second spawn invincibility. [changed from 3 rule]

During regular season, CTF is 30 minutes, cap to 3; ties are broken with a 30 minute sudden death replay of the map. Sides remain the same. If no one scores, during the regular season, ties will be worth 2 points (6th map can be gentleman's agreed to). In playoffs, CTF will be 1 hour, with the 6th map occurring afterwards if tied [changed from 6th map rule].

60 minutes, 300-450 reinforcements for conquest (1.5 times number in remote manager).

Minimum 3v3.

One ringer is allowed for either team if the other team agrees, and if the team can't field a full lineup from its roster.

Streaming the match is required if a streamer is available.

Winning team is ultimately responsible for match reporting and stats submittal, but both teams should take pictures.

Rule alterations can be made to individual matches pending third party staff and opposing team’s approvals (gentleman’s agreements). Please state them in public domain before the map begins, or inform the streamer.

Rules are subject to change per council vote, which is comprised of every team’s representative.

Rules not listed here are similar to classic BFC forum rules.

Both servers will be in Chicago (can be moved; takes two days). BFC official server password is nonoobs. Server priority hierarchy goes to the team battling, then the team who reserved it beforehand, and if neither did, the team who has battled less.

Polis Massa mod and Death Star mod must be installed.

Host simulation rate is 30.

DNAS is 74.91.125.138.

All battles must be documented in forum topics and reported accordingly by the winner.

Rule violations and grey areas will be ruled upon in a case by case scenario by the council.

Any questions or concerns, contact Stern (vsternv) on Skype.

If anyone wants their clan tag to have symbols like brackets, for example, please tell me. Right now I based the challenge ring off of a spreadsheet Delta made for the standings, but I don't think certain symbols work well with the formulas, so none of the teams on there have any right now. Normally we have a forum sign up thread and I get the tags from there.

The archives will use the tags from the challenge ring once the tournament is completed so if you want your tag to look a certain way, please let me know.

AA and V have combined to form AV. Rosters adjusted accordingly.

Update to match submittal policies:

All battle topics must include maps played, factions, and map winners. This is for the advanced statistics.
All battles, if not streamed, must have pictures of postgame statistics sent to myself.
In addition, I must know who played what class, and the time elapsed for each map (if no one changed classes, I just need the total time).
Winning teams are responsible for reporting matches and creating forum battle topics. If you're not sure the match was reported, check the stats checklist tab in the PS2 stats under current competition at the top.
